Top : SaturdayClub Tie Front Blouse in White (XS)
Bottom : Genie in a Closet Nelly Midi Skirt in Navy (S)



SaturdayClub Tie Front Blouse in White (XS)
This top comes in both black and white and has been restocked multiple times. I finally caved in to the temptation and decided to get the white one when they restocked for the 3rd time. The workmanship is superb and comes with their label tag and washing instructions. The tile detailing at the shoulders is intricate and quite sturdy - hopefully it doesn't fur after a few washes! However, the top is sheer despite being double lined in front as it is doubled lined with chiffon. I would have been happier if they used a more opaque inner lining as I feel this is more of a corporate blouse. It is not lined at the back hence it is much sheerer behind. I think this is an okay purchase as it is priced at a hefty $35. I feel that I'm paying more for the uniqueness of the deisgn and the excellent workmanship. I feel it is slightly big on my UK6 frame even though their website stated that this top is meant for a UK 4.

Genie in a Closet Nelly Midi Skirt in Navy (S)
This midi skirt comes in navy, black and wine. I have been looking for a midi skirt that is perfect for both work and play; I didn't manage to find any till I googled and stumbled on this one. Wine was actually my first choice but it was sold out before I could cart out and decided to get Navy in the end. It is made of a very luxurious and thick structured material that has a slight sheen. It is smooth to the touch and feels a bit heavy when worn. There is also a satin inner lining that ends at the lower thigh area that I thought is kinda needless as the skirt is opaque. Personally I feel it looks quite expensive when worn and does not look like it's $28 only. I like that it has two large pleats front and behind, creating the elegant flare of the skirt and projecting a vintage kind of look. I'm happy with the skirt and am still contemplating if I should join their BO for the wine one as I have navy already... argh!

Thanks for reading and happy weekends ahead!

By the way, has anyone received the BO for the Love, Bonito Wilhelm Dress? They've mailed out on 15 Nov but I still haven't received it. ):

I love the entire outfit!! Thinking of getting the top in black.. But I need more cream tops actually.

May I know if the skirt is cloth-like or neoprene/scuba sort of material? Wondering which color to order also!!

Hi! Thanks for your compliment! I got the white top as I thought the black sort of camouflage the neckline design but black will definitely be less sheer than white.

As for the skirt, I think its texture resembles a little like the scuba kinda material but is a much thicker and structured version. It feels more luxe too. (:

haha yup I really love the wine too! Have 2 more days to think before the BO closes! >.

The entire outfit is very flattering on you! Can I know what's the measurement for the skirt's waist unstretched? Is it as stretchy as the measurements stated? Thanks! :)

Hi! Thanks for reading! For size S, I measured it to be 11.25" unstretched and should be able to stretch up to 1 to 1.5" max. My waist is 24" and the skirt fits snugly and comfortably on me. :)

Hello! Thanks for your compliment! I think it's the fitted waistband and flare of the skirt that makes my waist seem tiny. (:

You look so slim in the ensemble! It's too tempting and I'm planning to get it too! Still wondering if I should get the blue or wine red one....

Hi! I'm 1.62m. If I'm not wrong, I remember seeing someone around 1.55m reviewed the same skirt in bestofshopping and look really good in it. Should look fine on you! (:
